7 family friendly cottages in a lovely rural setting near the ancient town of Linlithgow. Surrounded by fields yet only 17 miles from the vibrant city of Edinburgh and 40 minutes from Glasgow, the cottages are the perfect location for ‘Town and Country’ breaks.

The 3 renovated stone barns and 4 newly built cottages offer contemporary open plan living and each benefits from a fabulous hot tub. The cottages have been awarded 4 stars by Visit Scotland and provide relaxed and spacious accommodation. Think wood floors, large, comfortable sofas and a wood burning stove to keep things cosy in the living area. Each cottage also has full central heating. Double sofa beds in the mezzanine/play area in all but one of the cottages provide additional sleeping accommodation if needed.

Guests with small children will find that stair gates, socket covers, high chair, travel cot, kids' crockery and cutlery are all provided. There is even a selection of toys and games .

Outside, each cottage has a picnic table, barbecue, and chiminea. There is a large outdoor play area, swing park and woodland picnic area with teddy bear hunt.

The ancient town of Linlithgow was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and for centuries the retreat of the Stewart Kings. Don’t miss a visit to the magnificent ruins of the C15th palace that sit beside the loch. History lovers will also enjoy nearby Kinneil House, Blackness Castle and Torphichen Preceptory, the medieval headquarters of Scotland’s Knights Hospitaller

For active types, there are plenty of country walks and cycle routes . Cycling or walking along the Union Canal is a great way to explore the area. Beecraigs Country Parks in the Bathgate Hills offers mountain bike trails, adventure play areas and miles of woodland walks.

Guests at the cottages can take advantage of discounts at the local golf course and fishery, while Bo’ness Steam Railway offers entertainment for all the family. The owners also offer jet ski trips on Loch Lomond or the River Forth. For something a little more sedate, take a canal trip or head out on the Forth on a ‘SeaFari’ adventure.

There is an excellent railway service from Linlithgow – with frequent trains to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
